EPEC@EPSC Working Group

EPEC@EPSC Working Group

The Europlanet Science Congress (EPSC) brings together scientists from the fields of planetary and space research every autumn – virtually or in person!

The meeting covers all disciplines from space instrumentation to data analysis and modelling. Particularly for early career researchers, it can be a great experience and opportunity to attend EPSC and present their research and start forming a network.

The EPEC@EPSC Working Group ensures that early career researchers are represented at EPSC, that the conference programme is attractive to them, and that they find their way through the meeting with ease.
